Grids & Dots


Grids & Dots are the melodic noise project of visual designers Daniel and Carmen Han-Minikus, with drummer-philosopher Gray Thomas. Trying to capture the sound of their busy inner-city lives with snippets of melody and romance, principal songwriter Daniel is trying to find visual smidgens of his life in a jumble of fruit-salad poetry and quirky observations about the everyday. Influenced by both 80s synth-pop sense of harmonies and the noise drenched shoegaze bands of the later decade, Grids & Dots try to balance melody with a reverb-saturated impressionistic sense of the cities they live in, by pushing the boundaries of indie pop with an experimental fringe.
